news" headlined la pierre, the craziest man on earth. barbara, you know your way around washington, you know the political landscape there. how did what could only be described as a rant go over in your fair city? >> well i think one of the big questions right now, i think for the whole country, tragically, unbelievably, this newtown massacre. was this in fact the 9/11 moment, if you will for the issue of gun violence. has it fundamentally changed the american fabric of society. that is concerned about this issue. will that be enough to push the political landscape. senator dianne feinstein of course, democrat of california, very powerful within the democratic party. and the senate. she says she is going to introduce legislation when the congress comes back in january. on controlling the sale of assault weapons again. big question, will that ban on the sale of assault weapons be reinstated. it's all a question of how much political muscle is behind each side. and how much mr. la pierre may, may have damaged the nra's case. by virtue of how that friday press conference went over. miguel?

in washington. did the nra, wayne lapierre hurt himself in friday by what can only be described as this rant? >> well, look, emotions across the country are running so high, aren't they, on this? many people i think would believe this is the 9/11 moment of the gun control issue, after this terrible, terrible massacre in newtown. so, the question is exactly as you frame it, the political oomph, if you will, behind each side. after all of this, will the nra be -- have enough political muscle power on capitol hill to push back successfully against any new legislation that might be coming or will they have damaged themselves? what is the calculation? will those who favor reinstating the assault of the -- the ban on assault weapons or other new gun control legislation, including those high-powered magazines, those -- those magazines that can carry tense and tense and tens of rounds, will they have the political oomph this time to enact new legislation? >> barbara starr in washington, thank you very much. >>> earlier, i spoke with state of the union anchor candy crowley about -- we talked about th

beyond the schoolhouse door. miguel? >> a tough question in washington but what can only be described by a rant on friday by wayne lapierre what is your sense of it? the tone of it the fact he blamed anybody but didn't see any role for the nra to really play in this, how did that play, you think, in washington? >> reporter: well, the media machine that he referenced, i think you can well imagine, a good deal of the press corps found themselves perhaps scratching their head about that one. some people, of course, do support the nra and mr. lapierre. i think the real question, as you say, is one now of political muscle. will those who want to see more gun laws enacted have the political muscle now to get the votes for some new legislation, either on banning weapon sales or banning the high-powered magazines or will the nra be able, even after all of this and the growing sentiment by all accounts across the country, will they still have the political muscle that they have had for so many years to push back against any new legislation? >> very interesting. thank you very much, barbara sta
